A Thought On Urgency

I want to share some thoughts with you on urgency because I've been a bit distracted and jaded this past week and I believe God is stirring my heart back toward watchfulness.  With all that we've seen these past two years, is life really just business as usual?  Have God's plans been put on hold?  Is now the time for complacency?

But if that wicked servant says to himself, ‘My master is delayed,’ and begins to beat his fellow servants and eats and drinks with drunkards, the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know and will cut him in pieces and put him with the hypocrites.  In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
- Matthew 24:48–51


No doubt many in the Church are asleep and have lost sight of the prophetic milestones that have been transpiring at breakneck speed.  As long as things seem relatively normal in our neck of the woods—the daily grind of a desk job, family and friends getting married, and another season of our favorite show on Netflix—it can seem impossible to feel any real sense of urgency.  Yet is this feeling of normalcy that many Christians have a right emotion?

I would argue that it's not.  And in fact, normalcy is the antithesis of what God wants for us.  Even 2,000 years ago when the Church was first sent forth into the world, there was an incredible sense of urgency.  You can read it on virtually every page of Acts.  You see it in the desperate pleas of Paul, Peter, James, and John in their epistles.  And you can witness it in Christ's letters to the seven churches of Asia.

We're now 2,000 years closer to Jesus' feet touching down on the Mount of Olives and it would seem many in the Church are more focused on building their kingdom here, growing their 401(k), and watching Game of Thrones.  Consider the fact that while these past two millennia have been filled with wars and revolutions and all manner of historic events, it was only in the past century or so—perfectly coinciding with the rise of Zionism and the establishment of a Jewish nation-state—that life as it has been for most of human history suddenly changed.  The world has been completely revolutionized by technology, travel, and information, and, fittingly, the globalist political movement.

From a biblical perspective, all of these profound changes in our world have been perfectly timed to coincide with a successive slew of major prophetic milestones that only the most imperceptive could miss: The nation of Israel is back in the land again after a 2,700 year hiatus; the gospel has gone forth to every single nation on earth; there is now worldwide hatred of committed Christians from the top-down; virtually everything necessary for the construction of a third temple in Jerusalem is ready (including the identification and training of actual, Aaronic priests); mark of the beast technology has already been developed and is finding widespread social acceptance in Europe and the United States; and signs in the stars have appeared that match biblical descriptions word-for-word.

Dear friends, this is the time.  We've never known with certainty the precise day or hour of our departure, but we've seen numerous significant dates come and go, and rarely without significant prophetic fulfillment.  That's what many mockers simply fail to understand as they twist, distort, and put words into our mouths.  Not every prophetic fulfillment is the rapture or second coming itself.  As long as the Church remains on earth, the scoffers will disregard each and every fulfilled prophecy as these prophecies quickly whiz by.

But the door to the Ark is closing.  The door is Christ (Jn. 10:9) and the rapture is the escape (1 Thess. 4:13–5:11; Rev. 3:10).  At this point it's becoming increasingly difficult for me to identify anything further that might happen before the blessed hope because so much has already transpired.  We're just that close.

Presently, I want to turn your attention to the upcoming unveil of "The Deal of the Century" that is now set to be revealed in two stages beginning the last week of June in Bahrain.  Will there be any other peace plan revealed post-Revelation 12 Sign, besides this one, that either is the covenant of Daniel 9:27 or is what directly morphs into it once the man of sin gets involved?

I seriously doubt it.

I think the stars are aligned and this upcoming plan is what gets confirmed by the antichrist or is what precipitates the antichrist stepping in with his own plan.

With that being said, many of us have learned first-hand these past few years that God is sovereign to an extent most Christians don't understand.  He chose that in these last of the last days there would be an astronomical sign precisely fitting the words of the first two verses of Revelation 12.  He isn't deceiving us.

Furthermore, He chose a president named Trump and a vice president named Pence.  While most roll their eyes, I say, "Perfect timing!"  Unbeknownst to them, He uses their mouths to prophesy.  From their own mouths they've called this upcoming deal both "The Ultimate Deal" and "The Deal of the Century."  What epithet can outdo that?

And from what leaks and rumors we've seen, this deal is nothing like all the failed attempts in the past where both sides were wined and dined at Camp David and told to negotiate in good faith.  This deal is forced.  This deal involves unilateral action—like Israel annexing one-third of the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) as is rumored to happen as early as this summer.

It was this very deal that started being prepared one month before the Revelation 12 Sign, during the Great American Eclipse, when Kushner jetted off to the Middle East to meet with key leaders.

If we truly believe God rescues His people before wrath (which He does), thus the Church escapes before the 21 divinely appointed judgments described in Revelation, and that the rapture occurs at a time of seeming normalcy ("...as in the days of Noah ...as in the days of Lot"), then I can only conclude we leave before this deal is fully revealed if it is the deal.  Or, perhaps, we leave shortly after the deal is revealed, but before it takes effect.

The world is a house of cards teetering on the brink of calamity.  Societally, militarily, economically, and religiously, the world is ready to pop.  All that's holding this sinking ship together is the restraining force of the Holy Spirit in and through the Church as described in 2 Thessalonians 2:1–7.  When we go, disaster strikes suddenly and with unrelenting force.  All the pieces are in place for sudden destruction.

And the timing of it all makes perfect sense.  Israel is supremely confident in her might right now and believes its chances for peace have never been better or more advantageous than they are right now with Trump in the White House.  Her leaders believe this peace plan is finally going to give them rest and world acceptance.  There may never again be a perfect convergence like this, with such a seemingly pro-Israel U.S. president with the willingness and ability to give Israel basically whatever her leaders want.

But at their time of greatest pride, the Church is removed.  And suddenly they'll be attacked on every front.

Returning to "Trump/Pence," the name couldn't possibly be more fitting than at this specific time in history.  But there is something else: God raised Trump up at this very time to be a lightning rod in the U.S. and world.  Because of Trump and the nationalist domino effect around the world, virtually everyone on the fence is now off—either on one side or the other.

Unbelievers are showing where their heart really was all along regardless of past attempts to mask it. There is no more parsing words or tiptoeing.

It used to be that both sides generally agreed on the rule of law, legal immigration, confronting foreign enemies, and civil discourse.  Democrats in the U.S. even used to say that while they wanted legal abortion, they wanted it to be rare—and appeared to respect the convictions of those on the opposite end of the spectrum.  But now, because of peoples' reckless hatred of their political foes they are:

  • Marching in the streets with pictures of their own aborted babies

  • Smashing babies' graves

  • Openly attacking Christians

  • Defending actual lawlessness in just about every form

  • And quite literally going mad (e.g., the other night an actress on the Late Show said she wakes up screaming because of Trump and has nightmares about him).

Meanwhile, the world's most popular music competition was just held in Tel Aviv, Israel, featuring the Rev-12-woman-esque Kate Miller-Heidke floating above the earth with a crown of stars on her head (also note the red nebula with multiple "heads" reaching out toward her womb):




Eurovision 2019 also featured the demonic-looking band Hatari:




They left no question about their political motivations:




To top it off, Madonna's Eurovision performance was laden with devil worship, religious mockery, and apocalyptic imagery.  As if right on cue, the song shows a person representing Israel and another representing a Palestinian state arm-in-arm, moving up the steps toward a skull.  It's the covenant with death that's coming.




At the end of it all, the winner of the world's biggest performance, seen by at least double the number of those who tune in for the Super Bowl, was a bisexual named Duncan Laurence.  This was all broadcasted right from God's covenant land to the whole world.  God will not be mocked.  And just a few short weeks later, starting on Pentecost, one of the world's largest gay pride parades will be held in that same city.




Romans 1 and the strong delusion are here my friends.  The lawless didn't want the gospel, so God removed what little humanity they had left.  Now they're literally crazed and many want blood.  When the Church is gone... oh my.

Remember the townsfolk banging on Lot's door?  It's like that now, but on a worldwide scale all at once.

The days of Noah and the days of Lot are here, once again, and all because they refused to believe the good news of God's measureless love revealed in Christ.


Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever!  Amen.

For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions.  For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.  They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice.  They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness.  They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless.  Though they know God's righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.
- Romans 1:24–31


The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.
- 2 Thessalonians 2:9–10


The time is at hand.  The hour is urgent.  Today is the day of salvation.  Don't be among those who refuse to believe the wondrous and exceedingly good news of the gospel.

  3. Indeed, Gary, this is the time.

    I concur that about all that is left to happen is the resurrection/rapture (RR) itself. Prophecy Watchers just had Jack Langford on, yesterday (5/22/19) and what an interview it was. No need to wind-up Jack, he comes ready to go!

    Jack Langford: Pentecost and the Rapture

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED viewing!

    What remains to happen before we go vertical?

    Nothing.

    Nothing that I can see or tell from scripture. The ONLY hint I do see is a deadly threat to the body of Christ, His Church, as when Egypt came against the children of Israel on the shores of the Red Sea.

    And do we have potential military action to threaten the Church? Absolutely.

    Like you said buddy, "this is the time."

    See what others are saying about this hour. Jack Langford says it very well!

      God bless you for your exceeding wonderful encouragement over these years through your posts. I've read perhaps hundreds, and I continue to cherish them and you- ever so greatly. 70th year has now come and gone- We all feel the sadness- yet the Lord Jesus' return is closer than ever before and as you said we see nothing left to happen prior to lift-off. Let us not be discouraged or complacent or dismayed. Let us humbly come before our Heavenly Father in our finite understanding and cry "Abba, come quickly!"

      -Looking up with you and all who do in Jesus' name.

    4. Recent reports state that Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world -- especially in the Middle East where Christian communities are dwindling if not already wiped out.

      What I was speaking to (above) was a global or regional threat by military action that would trigger our being taken from here...much like what the children of Israel faced when they were trapped by the Egyptian army on the beach between the wilderness and the sea. But that is ONLY a theory and solely based upon the type given us in the Exodus narrative.

      In reality, the LORD can take us home at any time. In the meantime, it is all I can do to try to stay in step in my walk.

  10. We know we are in the season, Matthew 24:32-35 We know summer is coming. It's like were in the doldrums, and were being lulled to sleep. As we look at Pentecost from Leviticus ch 23, it's the only feast with leavened bread, two loafs, lifted upward as a wave offering. Why leaven? So much has been happening, people think were crazy, even some of those in the Church. Don't ever stop seeking and watching for our blessed hope. Moses and Noah had an ark. Elijah had a chariot of fire, Enoch was called home. Soon we will be also. Bless you all.

    1. Indeed. Here is a story on the topic from i24news,

      i24NEWS DESK | Netanyahu thanks Egypt for firefighting helicopters | Friday, May 24th 2019


      The video shows a SEAT (Single-Engine Air Attack) firefighting aircraft working a blaze.

      This becomes scary stuff very quickly. Look no further than the Camp, Hill and Woolsey fires of last November in California. My friends who lived in Paradise, CA have left for North Carolina to start new lives. They lost everything in that fire.

      Look what the flames did in Malibu?!

      Imagine that in Israel?

      Europeans and Egypt send air support as Israel battles wildfires

      Wildfires rage in Israel during heatwave

      Quoting, Aljazeera.com,

      "Jerusalem, which sits at 754 metres above sea level, recorded temperatures of 37.5 degrees Celsius on Thursday afternoon - its May average is 26C."


      Fires Across Israel Come Under Control; Thousands Evacuated

      Quoting, Haaretz.com,

      "Fire and Rescue service teams have estimated that the vast part of the fires were a result of negligence by people celebrating the Jewish holiday of Lag B'Omer on Wednesday night, who hadn't completely put out the traditional bonfires."


      It looks like we need to be praying for rain in Israel.

  13. About a year ago, after the many weekly missed _“…this is the date! All the phi/pi ratios align”_ proclamations posted across many sites (and parroted on others – not here), I decided to sit back and wait for the Deal of the Century. Every delay of its release just meant that God was not finished selecting the chosen.

    I’m now looking forward to reading that Palestinians will join the crew in Bahrain. This will indicate that they are on board with The Deal (or have collected the proper ransom to show up). I think ‘show up’ is the correct term as The Deal will get strengthened after our departure.

    Regarding Trump, it can only be the hand of God that allowed there to be a clean report after 3 years of spying by the CIA, FBI, M5, M6, etc. and their collusion with the mainstream media to bring him down. Anyone else would be gone by now.

  17. AN INTERESTING FIND

    The Autumnal Equinox, 2017 occurred at 2301 local time, 11:01 pm in Jerusalem on the evening of Friday, September 22, 2017. Civil twilight in Jerusalem was at 7 pm local time thus by Jewish reckoning the equinox was on the Sabbath (Saturday). By definition it was a day holy and set apart.

    It was a day of shouting and celebration. Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets), Shabbat Shuba (Sabbath of Return) and Rosh Hashana (Civil New Year).

    Since the rising of the great sign in the heavens over the earth we have been waiting and wondering; what does it mean? Here's a little something I found from my study time line models that might, or might not, have meaning.

    Counting 3,360 days from the Fall Equinox in Jerusalem on 9/22/17 forward we land on a very interesting day,

    Friday, December 4, 2026 at 11:01:00 pm


    Sunset on Friday, December 4, 2026 begins Hanukkah I, what we know from (John 10) as the Feast of Dedication, the Festival of Lights; an appointed day that begins at sunset the night before by the western calendar. Civil Twilight on 12/4/26 will be 1701 or 5:01 pm local time in Jerusalem. Hanukkah I, 2026 will be on the Sabbath day, a holy day of rest and set apart.

    What is the significance of the 3,360 day count 9/22/17 to 12/4/26? How many years are in 3,360 days? More importantly, what *kind* of years? If to think in prophetic years we will be counting 360 days per year. (Leap years not withstanding)

    Here's the simple math,

    3,360 / 360 = 9-1/3 or 9.33333


    There are 9-1/3 prophetic years in 3,360 days. Let's look at this answer from a little different perspective. Consider the answer not in years but let 9-1/3 represent months.

    What do we see now?

    A typical Hebrew month is 29 or 30 days. With rounding we can say they are 30 days. If a month is 30 days then 1/3rd of a month is 10 days. Doing more simple math,

    9 months * 30 days/month = 270 days
    270 days + 10 days = 280 days
    280 days / 7 days/week = 40 weeks


    Do any of these numbers look familiar? Moms and dads and medical grads should pick this up quickly!

    So the day count from the beginning of the sign which is of a, "woman who was about to give birth" (Revelation 12:4 ESV) to the Feast of Dedication, Festival of Lights can be equated to the number of days of average human gestation from conception to birth?

    It certainly looks like it may be so.


    Now, count backwards from Hanukkah I, 2026 2,550 days. Where do we land?

    Sunday, September 29, 2019 / Tishrei 1

    Rosh Chodesh (Head of the month) and Rosh Hashana (Civil New Years) come sundown in Jerusalem! AND WHAT APPOINTED TIME BEGINS BEGINS WITH THE SIGHTING OF THE CRESENCT MOON?!! The 49 hour celebration Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets, the Day of Shouting).

    Finally, has anyone noticed a recurrence of numbers showing up in your day-to-day? "111" is one such pattern that keeps popping up.

    Drop back 111 days from Yom Teruah, 2019 and what do we find?

    Sunday, June 9, 2019

    Shavuot (Feast of Weeks) or what we call Pentecost. A perfect picture of resurrection and new life. The day of conception in the upper room -- the day many consider the birthday of the Church.

    WOW!!!

    What does the great sign of (Revelation 12:1 ESV) tell us? The sign of the woman is confirmed. The birth of her child is imminent! If this calculation is true, it means that our time in this place is very short. Truly we already know, our time in this place is growing shorter by the day.

    Glory to God in the highest.

    THANK YOU TO GARY AND YOUR TEAM FOR FAITHFULLY MAINTAINING THIS SPACE THAT GOD MAY BE GLORIFIED AND THE NAME OF CHRIST JESUS BE LIFTED HIGH!!

    Grace and peace to you this and every day,

    3. Ok. And keeping in mind these are patterns, numbers, and such, I think God is hinting we are very close, though not necessarily Ascension Day. But Ascension Day is still interesting as it also the date of a peace and security meeting the Saudis are hosting.

      - 44,444 + 7 + 7 + 7 days before was its end.

      - 77 days before Ascension Day, President Trump ordered all Boeing 737s grounded.

      - 17,777 days before Ascension Day an extraordinary summit of the Arab League was held in Cairo to resolve clashes between Jordan and the PLO. The Black September war ended that day.

      - 10,000 days before Ascension Day is the fictional date of AI first becoming aware in 2001: A Space Odyssey

      - 77 weeks before Ascension Day, Trump recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital in televised speech

      - 77 months, 9 days before Ascension Day was Mayan Calendar end date

      - 329 months before Ascension Day Soviet Union dissolved.

      - 280 months before Ascension Day, Left Behind was first published. 280 days is average gestation.

    4. Wow! That is a lot of patterns that we can't ignore. Also the Bible said that they cry peace and security then sudden destruction comes. 1 Thessalonians 5:3.

      And the 2 Angels who urged the men to do their work instead of waiting and assuring them that the Lord will return. Acts 1:11

      That day is a high watch day for sure!

  18. Another of the features of the days of Noah was a great population boom... I think many skip over that part...

    Also, among the signs listed by our Lord Jesus was 'Seeing the son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.' While we may not see Jesus up in the clouds today, we have definitely mastered air travel and have even launched things into the heavens. Jesus said to look up when we see 'all these things.' I don't think He would have wanted us to wait to look up until He was sighted, though there's been several interesting cloud formations that remind people of Him now...

    1. I think Jeremiah 30 holds a significant clue singling our generation as the one. I mean very significant and proof imho. I'd link it if I knew how but it talks about seeing a man give birth to say how unique the last generation would be in comparison to all the generations before it. A person from the past would be shocked at our time period as anyone would be if they was to come upon a man in travail. Jeremiah 30 is never talked about in any of the prophecy talks I've come across.

    1. Israel as a politically sovereign nation ended roughly around the time of Babylon, when they were conquered. While most of the owners did allow them some independence culturally and religiously, they were still technically a province of (Persia, Greece, Rome, Constantinople, Ottomans, Britain, etc...) all the way up to 1948 when they regained their sovereignty as part of a series of treaties and recognitions.

  26. Hello to all fellow Saints. My name is Rolland, and I have been following Unsealed for about 3 years and have never posted a comment on any website until now. The Lord has put it on my heart that now is the time.

    Like many here on Unsealed, I believe the Lord has laid out a timeline for the snatching up of the Saints. Some of you have arrived at the belief that I also share, that though we do not know the day or hour, we can know the most important time to be looking up.

    I think many of you believe as I do that Jesus was pointing to the days surrounding the Feast of Trumpets. It is perfectly okay with me to look up one or two days to see that little sliver of the moon. But, this isn’t the big question. The big question is, will it be this year, or next year, or… ?

    What is needed is a more concrete starting point, and what would make it even better would be if our all mighty God put a large exclamation point at the end.

    All of the research over the years on Unsealed has been fantastic, and I would like to add two more research links for you to consider.

    First: “Daniel 12. The Time of the Resurrection” by David M. Rogers at Bible Truth, which the Lord led me to in 2008. https://www.bibletruth.cc/Daniel12AbominationofDesolation.htm

    The Feast of Trumpets will not begin until the new moon is sighted by two people on September 30, or October 1. I realize that most here on Unsealed already know this.

    Second: The exclamation point is already being drawn in 2019 as God brings a freezing weather conditions that we can see and feel right now, but it officially begins in 2020. The Solar Minimum that scientists have been tracking for years is to officially begin in 2020 and end in 2053. This is a duration of 33 years.

    To learn more about the new Mini Ice Age the World will suffer through, I recommend a Stephanie Osborne web page that covers all of the research performed by Dr. Valentina Zharkova and other scientists. Osborne managed to dig up this information, even as the Climate Change groups, government agencies, media and certain science institutions were trying to keep it from the public. https://accordingtohoyt.com/2018/12/12/the-latest-on-the-double-dynamo-solar-model-and-dr-zharkovas-predictions-of-a-grand-minimum/

    In conclusion, after many years of my own research, I began to share what I had found to much of my family. The reaction was disbelief and hostility, and I fear that when the Lord brings me home, I now expect to meet only one of my sisters there. I have grieved over this for years, but the Lord put it on my heart just recently that those who rejected God would have a second chance. They too could receive their white robes. Once they see the death and destruction brought about after millions instantly disappearing, and if they remember what they have been told, and believe, and ask for forgiveness.

    In that moment when the Lord put this on my heart, He gave me a feeling of calm, joy and love that I had not felt since the day I was saved.

    2. This site is all about calculating with certain numbers and date setting when it is about the timing of he Rapture. If our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ doesn't even know neither the day nor the hour He comes back, how can we calculate that with gematria and certain dates and numbers?

      Matthew 24:36:

      “No one knows the day and hour, not even the angels, not the Son but only the Father knows.”

      See also https://www.raptureready.com/2019/05/26/dont-read-edwin-tan/ "You Don’t Have to Read It :: By Edwin Tan".

      STOP DATE SETTING AND DABBLING WITH GEMATRIA HERE!

    3. Dear Moin - No one can "date set". The date is already set! We can't change it. It was set even before the foundation of the world by our Heavenly Father. All we can do is study, watch and wait. We are allowed to anticipate that date, right? That is a good thing. But, we are not able to "set" that date, no more than I can set the date of your birthday - it's already been determined. We should wake up each morning with great expectation of the Rapture. If it doesn't happen that day, we should expect it that night when we go back to sleep. And then the next, and the next, and so on. That's what I do. So - according to you - I "date set" daily. I will continue to do so until I am no longer on this planet!

    6. Hello Rolland; thank you for sharing. I have checked a little bit into the first article you shared and while it has some interesting points, I do recommend caution and discernment for anyone studying. It seems to base a lot of its calculations on 607 BC being the 3rd year of the reign of Jehoiakim (Dan. 1:1-3) for the purpose of proving that this event is when Nebuchadnezzar defiled the temple (Dan. 1:1-2) by carrying out some of the articles of the house of God (meaning he had to go into it first, therefore defiling it). This may well be the case, but my concern is that this point is belabored in Jehovah Witness' literature (the Watch Tower society) and from what I can tell, it is ONLY the JWs who believe this happened in 607 BC. There are other historical accounts that give different dates, which then render the theory here incorrect.

      The author needs this date to be accurate in order to prove his theory that this is when the daily sacrifices ceased to be continuous, and that this is when the 1290 year count begins.

      I've not researched more deeply, as there is a lot of material here and it uses a bible translation that seems more Hebraic than English. I do have some red flags but don't want to dismiss it completely without deeper and more careful study, therefore I simply urge caution.

      The following resource might be a handy reference for anyone who digs into the above-linked article by David M. Rogers on the Bible Truth website.

    8. Thank you Hillary for your comment and word of caution, and I assure you that I dug deep to learn everything that I could as to who David Rogers is, what he believes, and who his sources are before I would even consider his work.

      The primary sources used for the Daniel 12 study by David Rogers are Wikipedia, Britannica and Christian Research Institute (CRI). CRI is closely linked to Walter Martin who specialized in Christian counter-cult apologetics. So, using a Walter Martin source would indicate that David trusted it, and as a side note, Walter Martin’s book “Kingdom of the Cults” was instrumental in leading me to Christ back in the 70’s. David is the Pastor/Teacher for “The Miqra at The Upper Room Chapel” in Fort Mill, SC, and formerly an Elder at “House of Israel” in Charlotte.

      I agree with you that one should always use caution while sifting through work by other people, but trust in the word of God always.

      Keep looking up Hillary, and God bless.

  28. Sorry, had to correct a typing error. I don't believe this site is all about numbers and dates or gematria (though some attemps are made now and then) but this site is just helping us to be prepared for That Day. No one can calculate the day or the hour and yet, afterwards we will surely see that it was a perfectly planned day at the right time (fullness of time). Until then we can never be sure but we're just watching and praying and encouraging one-another with some new discoveries or signs of the coming of the Lord. Gary is always finding a meaningful explanation of things I've seen in the news but didn't understand it somehow. There are so many signs but most of us are too blinded to see it. We need to help one-another and stay awake for that day.

  30. I was pondering the meaning of 751 since that's the number of the members of the EU Parliament. From what I can gather, the Greek Definition "horse-ruler," Archippus, a Christian at Colossae.

    1. Hmmm, 751 is the 133rd prime number if I am not mistaken. It could be spelt as "אנן" in Hebrew which spells "Ann" in English. The Hebrew letters assigned those numeric values mechanically translate as,

      "א" Strong, Power, Leader
      "נ" Seed, Continue, Heir, Son
      "ן" [same meaning as "נ"]


      751 may be written as,

      "א" = one
      "נ" = fifty
      "ן" = seven hundred

      The sum of the number 751 is 7 + 5 + 1 = 13. Strong's has this to say of it,

      Source, Biblehub.com

      Strong's Concordance (H751)
      Erek: a city in Babylon
      Original Word: אֶרֶךְ
      Part of Speech: Proper Name Location
      Transliteration: Erek
      Phonetic Spelling: (eh'-rek)
      Definition: a city in Babylon


      There is only one (1) occurrence of (H751) "Erech" in the Bible in Genesis 10. Are you ready for this one?

      8 Cush fathered Nimrod; he was
      the first on the earth to be a
      mighty man.

      9 He was a mighty hunter before
      the LORD. Therefore it is said,
      "Like Nimrod a mighty hunter
      before the LORD."

      10 The beginning of his kingdom
      was Babel, *Erech*, Accad, and
      Calneh, in the land of Shinar.


      Hmmm, four cities associated with Nimrod. The son of Cush (Kush), the son of Ham and brother of Canaan; the one whom Noah cursed for his father's *indiscretion* in (Genesis 9:25 ESV). Four cities that, for some reason, remind me of four angels that are released by the sixth angel who had the trumpet in (Revelation 9:13-21 ESV).

      The time-frame of this sixth angel is immediately after the first woe. They are those who are, "prepared for the hour, the day, the month, and the year"..."to kill a third of mankind."

      Maybe there is a connection? Maybe not.

      Finally, yes, Strong's (G751) is "Ἄρχιππος", being "Archippus", a Christian brother in/from Colossae documented by name via Paul in (Colossians 4:17) and (Philemon 1:2).

      Thanks to the Ancient Hebrew Research Center for the mechanical translations from ancient Hebrew.


      Blessings,

  31. Pastor Rich, Happy Memorial Day. Thank you for unpacking my comment on the number 751 in your usual thorough and thoughtful way. Regarding the number 4, I thought of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Looks like they got Trumpian results in the EU elections. Snot noses will have more Nigel Farages to deal with. https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2019/05/a_global_trump_revolution_in_europe.htmlhttps://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2019/05/a_global_trump_revolution_in_europe.html

    1. You are most welcome!

      The four horsemen and four angels appear the same to me. If you understand an angel in the classical term, meaning, "messenger" and that they each convey a message...well the rest just makes sense.

      As interesting as they are, I am most intrigued by the two witnesses and the timing of their coming. There are some VERY interesting celestial events in the years to come and I tend to wonder if they coincide with the coming woes. (The two witnesses presiding over the second of which).

      Thus is the subject of my light personal reading and Bible study lately.

      Happy Memorial Day, 2019 to one and all!

    2. Pastor Rich, I think the 2 Witnesses might be Moses and Elijah because Jesus spoke with them during his Transfiguration on the mountain and also because mountains are connected with Moses and Elijah. Some say Enoch might be one of them.

      Delete
    3. Agreed, I concur. The two witnesses are either Elijah and Moses or come in the spirit of Elijah and Moses. I would lay odds on Elijah and Moses themselves for the very reason you cite. As for Enoch? I think he has a different role.

      Delete
    4. I know many people usually go with a combination of either Elijah, Moses or Enoch, as the 2 witnesses.

      But I think Daniel could be a contender also, because of the last line written in the book of Daniel:

      Daniel 12:13
      "But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days".

      It seems to imply that he will stand in his position at the end of days! Perhaps.. Maybe.. Maybe not..

  32. There are so many symbols from Revelation in Europe. The building in Strasbourg shaped like a bow and arrow from an aerial view. The 12 Star flag. The woman riding a beast (Europa). The representation of the EU looking exactly like the Tower of Babel.

  33. A few days ago Gary had a revelation on the meaning of Prime minister May leaving.

    ======== quote ========
    As you all have surely seen, Theresa May just resigned.
    Theresa comes from a Greek word meaning "to harvest".
    So Theresa "the Harvest" May is gone in... the month of May!
    ======= unquote =========

    Concerning the month of May, that is very exciting. Also think about this: Theresa May did her very best to make her nation leave the European Union. Since we know that Europe represents so much of "mystery Babylon" and the symbolism of the beast, I suppose it was a good thing that she wanted her nations to get out. But she failed and instead she herself left the scene this month. Likewise we cannot save the whole world nor will we be able to bring everyone into the Ark but only those those who truly believe in Jesus will be raptured and leave this world. Jesus said that only a few will be saved (Mat 7:14).

    I think this Theresa May leaving now is full of symbolism.

    Are now the right conditions for the worldwide famine of Revelation 6:5-6 being set for this prophecy being fulfilled?

    Revelation 6:5-6 (KJV):

    "5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.

    6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine."

  35. Moin, I thought the very same thing about the famine coming because the flooding out west ruined crops for years to come. Then companies like Monsanto knowingly allowing deadly chemicals (glyphosate ?) in breakfast cereals. I think the NWO is trying to reduce the population via food, vaccines and water. I read they have put sterilants in vaccines given to women in Africa. Seriously evil people.

  36. Moin, yes very well might be as soon as the current HR steps down. The term is five years and she has had the position since 2014, so the timing is perfect. What a convergence of events ! God's perfect timing, of course. As His Holy Word says, we can see the day approaching.

    1. Sebastian Kurz from Austria is a good candidate to be the antichrist, see https://www.raptureready.com/2017/10/22/a-new-candidate-for-antichrist-has-appeared-on-the-world-stage-by-jeffrey-scanga/ "A New Candidate for Antichrist :: By Jeffrey Scanga". But keep a close watch on Greece, because Tsipras has called for early elections just after the past elections for the European Parliament. A very good possibility that the antichrist will come to power from Greece.

    2. Moin, thanks for the link. It appears Tsipras radical/communist platform got him thrown out, but he could still end up being the Anti-Christ. Some even think Prince William who is definitely a globalist and calls for population reduction even as his wife has given birth to yet another child.

  37. And the Pope isn't getting any younger and if he is the False Prophet, I think things will happen sooner than later. Thank God the USA is a constitutional federal republic and not a parliamentary system which is a real pain. I thank God for our Founding Fathers who God blessed with such wisdom and courage to try something no one ever attempted before and that they succeeded so spectacularly. It's so good even the recent coup attempt fell flat on its face and has backfired on the conspirators. Praise God for thwarting them.

  38. A PIN-POINT

    New elections on the horizon for Israel!

    Quoting, i24news.tv

    "If Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is unable to form a government by Wednesday at midnight, it is within parliament's authority to dissolve itself, President Reuven Rivlin's office said Tuesday, adding that the president "'he hopes that we won't be caught, G-d forbid, in another election campaign.'

    If Netanyahu’s ruling Likud party is unable to make a deal with its coalition partners, namely Avigdor Liberman’s Yisrael Beytenu party and the ultra-Orthodox parties, the Knesset is in the process of voting to dissolve itself.

    On Monday night, Israel's lawmakers passed a dissolution bill through its first reading with 66 votes in favor and 44 against, with one abstention.

    A special Knesset committee authorized the bill to go to its second and third readings before Wednesday at 11:59pm. If elections are called, they will be held September 17, according to the bill."


    Tuesday, September 17, 2019 is Sukkot Day 3 according to Torahcalendar.com. The civil calendar has no appointed days on this date thus the election being held on that day.



    This has major potential implications on the forthcoming Middle East peace plan. Another Israeli election and potential change in government combined with the coming election year here in the US will make things *interesting* to say the least.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I think Bibi would win no matter how many elections it takes, but it might make President Trump move forward with the peace deal while Bibi is still PM and not take a chance that something happens and Israel ends up with a different PM.

  42. A DIFFERENT CHORD

    18 Earth-sized exoplanets discovered

    Quoting, Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research,

    "In addition to the previously known planets, the researchers discovered 18 new objects that had previously been overlooked. 'In most of the planetary systems that we studied, the new planets are the smallest,' co-author Kai Rodenbeck of the University of Göttingen and MPS describes the results. What is more, most of the new planets orbit their star closer than their previously known planetary companions. The surfaces of these new planets therefore likely have temperatures well in excess of 100 degrees Celsius; some even have temperatures of up to 1000 degrees Celsius. Only one of the bodies is an exception: it likely orbits its red dwarf star within the so-called habitable zone. At this favorable distance from its star, this planet may offer conditions under which liquid water could occur on its surface - one of the basic prerequisites for life as we know it on Earth."


    The announcement of 18 new Earth sized exo-planets on May 22nd caught my eye. 18 being the sum of the number of man three times ( 6 + 6 + 6 ) and five (5) being the number of Grace. Twenty-two is very interesting as it is the number of letters in the Hebrew alephbet. The LAST letter is "ת" (pronounced, "Tav") and is the *mark* given the faithful in Ezekiel 8. The tav looks like a cross or "x" in ancient Hebrew!

    The announcement of these planetary discoveries gives rise to considering (Revelation 21:1) -- life for us after the millennium.

    I just so happen to have received a new study Bible from One Path Publishing, "THE PURE WORD" New Testament. It is claimed as the "world's first and only hermeneutics-based monadic Greek to English translation."

    Quoting (Revelation 21:1) directly,

    1 And I Spiritually Saw a New of a Different Kind Heaven,
    and a New of a Different Kind Earth, because the first
    Heaven and the first Earth have passed away, and the sea
    is Definitely No More.

    (Revelation 21:1 TPW)


    Here is the same verse from the Greek,

    21.1 AND I SAW A NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH.
    FOR THE FIRST HEAVEN AND THE FIRST EARTH PASSED AWAY,
    AND THE SEA IS NO LONGER.

    (Revelation 21:1 GNT)


    ...and finally here it is from the ESV,


    1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth,
    for the first heaven and the first earth
    had passed away, and the sea was no more.

    (Revelation 21:1 ESV)


    This new translation is very interesting and something I have yet to scratch the surface. Here's another selection from (Revelation 12:1-2)

    1 And he saw the Spiritual Appearance,
    a great Miracle Sign in the Heaven, a
    Woman clothed with the sun and the
    moon under her feet, and upon her
    head a Crown of Twelve Stars,

    2 And while having travailing in birth
    with a child made tormented, cries out
    and gave birth.

    (Revelation 12:1-2 TPW)


    Knowing there is so much real estate in the heavens with potential for habitation. In the light of (Romans 8:22-23),

    22 Because we are Discerning that All
    Creation is groaning together, and is
    travailing in pain together until now.

    23 And definitely not only (Creation) but
    definitely Ourselves also Having Firstfruit
    of the Spirit, even we Ourselves groan
    within ourselves waiting Adoption
    (Romans 8:15; John 17:21-23), the Separation
    Removal of our body.

    (Romans 8:22-23 TPW)


    How free will we, and all of creation, be at the destruction of Satan by his being cast into the lake of fire?! Will our home be in a new garden in the Eden of another cosmic shore? Will the heavenly stellar hosts be for us a new Mazzaroth; meaning "crown of stars"? Will God create an entirely new heaven as He did on the second day? Either way, I know that when we see what He makes by the breath of His voice; we will all know that He said,

    "It was good."


    Grace and peace to you, always,
